 Master Workshop 416

Round tripping from Lightroom to Photoshop with John Reuter

Explore the best of both Lightroom and Photoshop to import, process, refine and print your digital images.  There is no better way to import and organize your images than Lightroom. While its develop tools are robust there are often good reasons to take advantage of Lightroom’s  “Edit In” function to send the image over to Photoshop for further refining or more advanced layer based techniques.   Photoshop’s retouching tools are far more flexible than Lightroom with its pixel based cloning and patching. Layer based sharpening can be applied with flexibility and specificity that Lightroom cannot match.  Once you are done the trip back to Lightroom is as simple as saving and you can take advantage of Lightroom’s superior printing interface to realize your final image.  With practice the roundtrip process can become second nature and the control of your creative potential is greatly increased.
